    I Was At My Local Park, Where There Is A Big Population Of Dumped Ducks. People regularly Feed them bread, So I Go By Every Now And then To Toss Them Some Layer Pellets/Scratch. so Yesterday, I was there And I Saw Some Teenagers With A Box Walking Up And Down, Then, All Of A Sudden, they take Out A Muscovy Duck, And they Tossed It In The pond, And Started Throwing Rocks At It!! I Was Shocked. So I Marched Right Over there. Once They Saw Me, They Ran. And I managed To Coax It Over Once It Went Up On The Bank. I Would've Given them A Piece Of My Mind!! So now, In An A-Frame In my Yard, I Have A White 'Scovy Duck. Her Names 'Fat Duck' Or 'Fatty' For Short. And That's Her Story, Thanks For Reading [​IMG]

    She's Doing Great. I Will try to Put Some Pictures Of her Up On A Separate Post. My Mom Wanted to get Rid Of her At first, but then She Laid An Egg, And That Managed To Convince My Mom She Was A Keeper!!

    Oh, the Power Of Eggs.....

    I am very proud of you. I applaud you for your work on rescuing that poor duck from those morons. Another reason why they want to destroy the breed..ppl. are destroying themselves and their environment and they are too STUPID to know it.
    but on a positive note...I got my first muscovies also..this weekend at a Poultry swap/sale. here are some pictures.[​IMG][​IMG] their names are Hershey and Cocoa.

    Yesterday I sent pics. to a friend of mine, who immediately called me and wanted to know why I didn't buy some from her...she has over 100 and needs to get rid of some. LOL...all this time I have been looking and now I find out she has that many....ughhhhh...so needless to say I will be working faster to get the fence up around the pond and getting some more.
